Sens. Menendez, Booker Planning 24-Hour Fast in Solidarity With Immigration Reform Protesters

NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey's two U.S. senators are planning a 24-hour fast in solidarity with protesters in Washington, D.C. pushing for immigration law changes.

Sens. Robert Menendez and Cory Booker visited the group Fasters for Families in Washington on Wednesday.

The group has been on a water-only fast to urge the House of Representatives to consider an immigration reform bill that passed the Senate.

A spokesman for Menendez says he'll renew his call for the House speaker to bring it to a vote. He is an architect of the bill.
